LEHS Band Newsletter
Edition #5 (November 2 - 15, 2020)
A Note from Mr. Felice
Also, many of our LEHS students will begin recording for the 2020 6A All-Region Band this Saturday. A sign-up genius will be included in this newsletter for the students to sign-up for recording times. We are asking each student to sign-up for one time slot (15 minutes) on Saturday, November 7th, between 10am - 1 pm, then one time slot (15 minutes) on either the following Monday or Tuesday after school. It is important that these students use their school computer, along with a good quality USB Mic to get the very best recording possible. The band department has three very high quality USB microphones. Please be sure to bring your computer to school with you for these sessions. A specific URL code will be given to each child auditioning for the All-Region Band. They will use this code to access their individual recording website. Mr. Atkinson, Mr. Neal (Percussion), and myself will be sure they have instructions on how to make these recordings and submit them for the audition.
Here are the TMEA All-Region Audition dates:
6A Phase 1 - November 7-11, 2020 (virtual uploads)
6A Phase 2 & 9th Grade - December 5-9, 2020 (virtual uploads)
The following instruments DO NOT have to submit for Phase 1, only the Phase 2 Auditions:
Piccolo / Oboe / English Horn / Eb Clarinet / Bass Clarinet / Contra Bas Clarinet / Bassoon / Contra Bassoon / Tenor Sax / Baritone Sax / Bass Trombone
We are very proud of our band members, as they continue to work hard to make sure that every performance of the Lobo Band is better than the last. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next home football game on Nov. 6th!
